america. >> remember back in 2009 the u.s. unilaterally broke our security agreement at the behest of russia? what has that gotten us? >> i remember the headlines, that said "betrayed". the poland and czechs learned that if we stand up with the united states we are not going to stand with them. we aren't strong, we around bold. when you negotiate with the former kgb, you want to be the dominant personality, those two things are very important. it is going to be hard to talk about letting snowden into the united states. putin looks into the eyes of barack obama. if there was a strong personality there, and someone who was willing to put out a strategy, he would react to that. i see the hand that he is playing. >> senator, isn't it em bar rasing to see him suck up to him the way that he has? >> i think so. >> i think it is. >> senator? >> once he started his administration on the apology tour. he is looking for the love of the world when we need respect. we need to show that we are the world's leader. then russia would start respecting us. we need to start encouraging nato expansion.
. this is "special report". >>> good evening. we begin tonight with the confusing jobs picture in america. sometimes in washington and on the campaign trail you hear candidates calling for one armed economists. so those economists can't say on the one hand and on the other hand. in other words, you can use numbers to prove anything that is even remotely true. so as one key unemployment indicator hits a six-year low we take a closerer look at some of the arithmetic you don't often hear about. >> reporter: over the last four weeks jobless claims jobbed to 335,000 on average, the lowest average since november 2007. it is another sign coupled with last month's rate that the economy may be pulling out. >> i think the general pattern from this report, other data coming in is the economy is continuing to heal. >> reporter: another employment number may help to explain why businesses remain hesitant. it is the u-6 rate which includes under employment. it stands at 14.3%. >> we are in the fifth year of recovery and yet people are dropping out of the workforce. i have never seen that happen before. >> reporte

can go on jay leno, he can do children's birthday parties. right now, america doesn't need an entertaining president, they need a charmless jerk, he is getting a screen test. he is on the west coast. there's no sense the country is moving forward, which is ironic, because he is a progressive president and he is frozen in time. he can't get this country moving. people are acting like being cool is a break through in leadership. it is not. we get it, you're cool, it is time to lead. he thinks leading is cheesy because he doesn't believe in what he is leading. >> i have no problem with president obama, if he likes to wear the helmet, ride the bike in martha's vineyard, that's fine. he evacuated 22 embassies friday, spent the weekend playing, his own words, i golfed, played basketball, took pictures with friends in the oval office, blew out candles. >> how about issue a statement or have a press conference, act like you're responsible, that you're not auditioning to play commander in chief in hollywood but you want the job and are serious about terror. this is nothing new to me
for example? >> if you were dolley madison, you could not go anywhere whether it was a city in america or france without having to shop for her. also very early on she became the patriot jay of the french minister's wife and she schooled her as well. >> she hired a master of ceremonies in the white house who was french and familiar with all of the diplomatic niceties shall we say so that he would explain to her what kind of food was served and what the french taste was and what french qui -- cuisine was about, so she had a number of people who helped school her in this type of thing. >> the white house staff is large and all of this come from the money that they were paid or from their personal wealth, all these extra staff and advisors that you talk about? >> probably most of them did. for instance, one of the things she hired as they called him french john away from the minister from great britain which was a huge slap tofment hire somebody away from somebody someone away else's household particularly when that person was in the diplomatic community was an insult on the one hand or a
's religions utile flowers from the same garden. i was at a gathering of evangelicals around america. and this includes clerics from the muslim world. an improbable gathering. for three days people worked and struggled with the effort to find the common ground. in fact between all the religions and philosophy. whether a new order confucianism or any of the other different approaches this is tied together. by the golden rule. and they all come from the same human heart. leaders and citizens, particularly people in public life, everyone talks about how we draw strength from the example of our faith-based communities. but not enough people actually translate those words into actions or policies or life philosophies. so i think that whether it's teachers are activists or religious leaders, working to heal others, we learn a great deal. it stands in stark contrast to violent extremists seek to destroy and never talk about building a community or providing health care with anybody. so we need to recognize that in a world where people of all faiths are mingling like never before, where we a

this notion that beginning even before obama took office in berlin that you could go and apologize for america. blow kisses at europe, then, you know, outstretch your hand to iran and now you go to cairo, apologize for america. apologize for a cia operation that took place nearly a decade before obama was gone. and end wars. and that that would somehow make these threats go away. it just hadn't happened. obama still can't name the threat we face. saying it's just extremism. i know someone who calls himself extreme yoga instructor. put her in guantanamo and make the enemy safer. the enemy in this regard is islamism. we are doing just about nothing to fight that. >> laura: christian, i will take issue with something you said though because while you are right, i think on the language, president bush didn't use islamic extremism. i think a couple of times, right? he kind of brittled from saying that he would say terrorist, he would say war on terror. he was very sensitive about offending moderate muslims who we do want to come along and support freedom agenda. republicans and democrats want that.

in america." the pendulum is swinging in the republican party now. as the party moves hard right, will they really try another establishment time like romney or dole or mccain or christie or jeb bush? or will the party go for one of its tea party heroes like rand paul? here with me now is the author of the great book "collision 2016." dan, let's talk about what you call the subterranean campaign of 2012 and what it offers us in the future. >> we think of the campaign as the campaign we all cover all the time. everything we talk about, every utterance, every gaffe, every debate, every movement. and that's part of politics and in many ways the interesting and enjoyable part of politics, but it's not necessarily the decisive part of politics. there are important and powerful underlying forces that effect every campaign. in 2012, one was the economy. would it be just good enough to allow president obama to win re-election or bad enough to deny re-election. another was voter anger. which direction would it go? a third was the deep red/blue divide and how that shaped attitudes beyond w
to say what is happening in rural america in general. what we have found is, particularly in the south and southwest, rural school districts have been consolidated almost to the hills. very large districts in their role self. we think, to a large extent, we have reached the economies of scale in these communities. that makes sense for those communities. but what happens, for the most part, you do not achieve cost savings and the quality that most proponents of consolidation assume that you will achieve by consolidation. particularly in the rural sites, you see it increased costs around transportation, lots more travel time for kids on buses, a much longer day. we have kids getting on the bus before daylight and they are getting off after sunset. when you factor those things into the formula of what is working, what should be the response to the small school problem -- and i do not like to think of it as a small school or small district problem -- it is a situation that exists that does not have to be problematic. when we look at it in terms of dollars saved by increasing numbers and re
